Derry Moore: In the Shadow of the Raj

01 January 2018

19 JANUARY TO 17 FEBRUARY

TASVEER, BANGALORE

In the Shadow of the Raj features a selection of 28 photographs by the English photographer Derry Moore. The exhibition highlights enduring colonial legacies in the visual and social life of India through Moore’s architectural studies, images of interiors, and also landscapes and portraits. Taken in the mid 1970s and early 1980s, many of these photographs capture a young nation caught in the throes of a political, social and technological transformation.

A sense of arrested time is created through the black, white and grey tones in his photographs.
